    Exactly and we deserve what we have.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Whether all of the people in the USA deserve the president which the majority chose is open to question, but, in any case, he is the president.

    indeed, since majority rules in our Constitution, he is president of all the people.
    The point was more to a 3rd party, the only way out I see from the stagnant duopoly.

    Partisan politics is killing the U.S., and Obama is a big player - not unique - but I had expected just a little better from the "post -partisan POTUS"

    Obama has disappointed me also but I am not surprised that he has shown himself not to be that different from the rest of the pols who ended up in the White House.

    He's no better and no worse than most of them.

    But the Neo-cons have given him little respect for sending America's military in harms way with no gains for U.S. security.

    If he destroyed Iran's nuclear program they would be unhappy that he didn't glassify the whole country.

    well that's kinna what a neo-con is right? (if i understand you), they believe in forcing democracy - solely for democracy's sake itself,
    as some kind of imperative

    Good reminder, Annata. There is no good reason why this book should not be taught in high schools everywhere.

    Is there something wrong with that? Why would anyone want to be taxed more to support government wasteful spending, and just to give you an example . . .
